Okay, friends. Christmas is less than two weeks away. If you’re scratching you’re head trying to figure out how that happened, don’t worry. I’ve got you covered. Here are my favorite gifts that absolutely won’t break the bank but will still make someone feel oh-so-special when they find it under the tree!
Initial Necklace: One of my favorite pieces of jewelry I’ve ever owned is an ‘A’ from my first year of marriage. Whether you choose their first name initial, their new last name initial, the initial of their new baby or the initial of their spouse, you just can’t go wrong with this.
Diptyque Candle: Diptyque candles are iconic and such a statement maker. I burn mine sparingly and really just use it as decoration in my office! This scent, the Vanilla and Mimosa are my favorites.
Agenda: I’m a little bit of a planner hoarder. There’s nothing better than a fresh planner to set out new goals for organization in the New Year.
Fresh Lip Set: Fresh lip sugars are some of the best tinted lip moisturizers on the market. This kit also includes their award-winning ‘lip polish’ that makes lips insanely soft, a balm and their win-an-award-every-year lip stain I can’t seem to get enough of. What a perfect gift!
Delicate Earring Set: These are all stunning and little statement makers like these are a go-to.
Cubic Zirconia Earrings: No joke, I’ve worn these exact earrings from Nordstrom since I was 13. My cool older sister was recieving compliment after compliment on her “diamond earrings” and I thought yep. I need some of that flattery in my life. I bought them with my own money and have been repurchasing ever since! They look so real it’s shocking. Truth be told, I now have real diamond studs and still wear these most.
Marble Jewelry Box: This is just such a beautiful piece. I actually got it for a friend a few weeks ago! You can stick something inside to make it even more special like a bath bomb, special candies or if you’re feeling really fancy, the earrings above.
Leather Tassel: A leather tassel is really simple but takes a purse to that next level. I like this nude leather version to elevate even the simplest of bags (I’m looking at you, Diaper bag backpack.)
RMS Luminizer: If you’ve read this post, you know how much I sing the praises of this little highlighter pot. I wear it every.single.day. You just open it up and tap it on the highest point of your cheekbones, on your brow bone and in the slimmest line down your nose and BAM. You’re dewy, highlighted and glowing from within. It really lives up to its name, ‘Magic.’ This color is totally universal and you will change someone’s life with this! I just purchased this for secret santa.
Delicate Ring: I wear dainty rings every day and this one is simple enough to be a no-brainer gift but special enough to make a real impact.
Velvet Bow Hair Tie: This would be a precious gift add on and it’s something sweet people would love but wouldn’t be likely to purchase for themselves.
I’ve pulled together plenty of my favorites under $50 so you can’t go wrong!
